Chiral Cationic Ion-Pairing Catalysis  »

4pm 16 May 2018

Phase transfer reactions using chiral cations and inorganic basic salts such as hydroxides and carbonates are but a sub-set of a larger group of reactions known as chiral cation ion-pairing catalysis. Herein, we report three reactions using chiral dicationic bisguanidinium ion pairs as catalysis; they are are each paired with three different organometallic anions – permanganate, tungstate and molybdate. The ion pairs-catalyzed asymmetric oxidation of alkenes and sulfoxidation respectively.
